enforcement. we'll be talking about that but you need those taxes the enforcements is a strategy to get to the process. the way i hope to approach this is to ask how many taxis and then a little bit of a side issue why is the sighed car not the solution. we ask ourselves that question, too, and we have an answer for you. then as the port structure there's a good solution we think are important and from there recommendations. as you know this is based 3 documents. i should review this is our general approach is to rely on multiple lines of studies. this is to get the local story and history it's difficult to get user voices so we use tourism hospitality and all the folks we talked to have their story. to reach out further we says drivers individualsly. in fact, a large sample was results by neighborhood. it was an informative reach. as economists we look at how it's structured. we look at other cities we have our model of taxi demand and we go out on the street so we did some extensive street observations. and you yourself have been looking at this for quite a while. we should start by d

have the overhead i want to show you may have seen that but this is the last issue of the united tax news letter with the picture of the mayor on the cover. i think he needs to be called out on this. because the mayor of this city as turned his back on - the city's own taxi industry and this regulatory agency by endorsing the operations of companies that are operating in the city unlawfully, unregulated, unlicensed. and for the mayor to do that i mean it seems disgrace full to me. those companies are providing uncontrolled competition. their numbers are growing day by day and the direction that is solution is taking of putting out more taxis to meet more of their vehicles to take back taxi share from us. i don't think that's going to work. there's a very influential article that goes back a few decades called the tragedy of the common sense where, you know, the farmers use a common area to grace their cattle and, you know, farmers this farmer puts another cow an and another farmer puts a cow on it and pretty soon that's their individual benefit to do it but the cows are staffing. we

. fines are a regressive tax on the poorest of san francisco citizens. let me tell you, recently i ran into a san francisco resident and citizen who hasn't been to a library in more than 7 years. and that's because this person lost a borrowed videotape. the bill for the replacement was more than this person could afford to pay and there was no payment plan offered, no reduction offered, and no alternative to payment. or some way to work it out, for example, by volunteering to help the library or the public in some way. seven years of no library use because of one lost video. the point of the story is that fines and fees are a huge barrier to library use and the library in part recognizes that by giving kids free fines and seniors half off the usual adult 10 cents a fine. but those barriers should be removed entirely and that's something that you can [inaudible]. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. if you could please speak on the microphone. that's on the overhead. thank you. >>> hi, my name is neil dahani. i sit on the board of san francisco beautiful and also the neighb
